Is it really any wonder this country is the way it is. Reading in the paper today that the 'special manager' Mr Charleton is going to be paid 423 euro an hour and his assistants from 150 to 423 an hour. So lets just do the maths here. 423 an hour, say he works 35 hours a week he is costing c14,800 per week. Say he works on this for a year, we'll give him 4 weeks off, he might want more but probably thinks he can't afford to miss any work, so his 48 weeks will see him paid c710k. That doesn't include pay for his colleagues. Who is actually picking up this tab is it Newbridge CU or the taxpayer? How come if the CB wasn't happy with the make up/competence of all the board members that it hasn't acted before now? An absolute disgrace to pay somebody this amount of money due to the incompetence of both the Credit Union and the Regulator for not getting in suitable people on to the board earlier and saving the credit union members or the taxpayers this obscene money. I wonder are there any other CUs in similar situations?
